Pickle's Potions created its under-eye serum with one goal in mind: to provide effective and safe skincare solutions using natural ingredients!
Driven by a genuine passion for skincare and armed with an unwavering commitment to clean beauty, Kristin, the founder of Pickle's Potions, set out to tackle the common problem of puffy eyes in a unique and refreshing way.
Frustrated by the lack of gentle and effective solutions on the market, she embarked on a quest to develop a product that would soothe, hydrate, and revitalize tired-looking eyes. And thus, the extraordinary Cucumber Eye Gel was born.
But there's more to this brand than just its eye care product. Let us take you on a captivating discovery deep into the heart of Pickle's Potions. Find out more about its products and why they deserve top spots in multiple categories in the 8th Clean Beauty Awards.

The tissue around your eyes is considerably thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face. For this reason, our eyes are the first to display the signs of aging. Adding Pickle's Cooling Cucumber Gel to your daily routine is a proactive response to this reality. The rich blend of natural components, including pomegranate extract and peptides, treats this vulnerable area with a focus on retaining moisture and tightening the skin.
“I felt the tingling/tightening sensation on the skin around my eyes. I really love the roll on packaging and great price.”

Top 5 Finalist at the 2023 Clean Beauty Awards for Eye Care
This is an ultra-nourishing under-eye balm made with potent botanicals and unrefined oils. It is anhydrous, meaning there are no water or water-based products in it. It is very potent, and every single ingredient is there for its skin-benefiting ability. This balm has brightening, soothing, and moisturizing properties, and can help lighten the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles. It can also aid in easing the appearance and texture of scars, due to the regenerative nutrients found in rosehip seed oil. It also contains beta-carotene for its antioxidant abilities as well as its ability to reduce UVA-light-induced damage.
The top star is extracted from the Terminalia Arjuna tree. It contains terpenoids, flavonoids (quercetin, rutin), and phenolic acids (gallic acid, ellagic acid) with powerful anti-free radical abilities. It is known to visibly reduce eye puffiness and reduce wrinkles and fine lines under the eyes. Arjuna can also reduce the blue pigmentation of dark circles, and the skin pigmentation of the eye area becomes more even-toned. Finally, it stimulates microcirculation around the eye area.
“Rich yet light texture and wears well around the eye area. Also wears well under makeup.”

Top 5 Finalist at the 2023 Clean Beauty Awards for Lip Care
Pickle's Rose Gold tinted lip butter with hyaluronic acid, amino acids, and pomegranate sterols is super smooth and buttery. Hyaluronic acid (Oleo-HA) provides excellent moisturizing, lip-plumping, and repair properties. It has a significant repairing effect on lip skin and can improve dry or chapped lips, and make them more smooth and soft after long-term application. Pomegranate sterols increase moisture levels while enhancing the skin's barrier function to protect against environmental stress, which is responsible for extrinsic aging. Pomegranates are high in vitamin C and other antioxidants that protect and nourish your delicate lips. Palmitoyl isoleucine, a lipoamino acid, supports tissue repair, improves skin elasticity, and boosts vital proteins in the lips. It can also plump lips to add volume and is an anti-pollution agent, helping protect your lips from damage.
“This hydrating lip butter imparts the most gorgeous glow to the lips! It's that perfect 'your lips but better' hue with a just subtle enough golden glow that wakes up your complexion. I find it very hydrating for a color product, and it doesn't get too heavy or pack on too much color if you add another layer or two. Perfect minimalist lip color, and I definitely want to check out more from Pickle's Potions!”
